Assembling Pillow Panel (CJAYG Method):

  3. Follow the pattern instructions from Round 4 for joining (optionally follow along with a video tutorial for visual guidance).
  4. Once all squares are joined to form the panel, fasten off and weave in all ends. The final pillow panel measures 19”x19”.

Finishing the Pillow:

  1. Lay the pillow cover with the wrong side facing up.
  2. Fold the corners of the pillow cover into the center and seam together using a zig-zag slip stitch.
  3. On the final seam, leave room to stuff your pillow into the cover before fully seaming it shut.
  4. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
